Granite curb going in, followed by new, wider sidewalk

We're seeing a flurry of activity along Peachtree to ensure excellent progress before we scale back for the holidays. Several retaining walls are now complete, so we turn our attention to installing granite curbing on the north side of Peachtree at Stratford Road. When that is complete in the next two weeks, we will pour the new, wider sidewalk.

The Peachtree Boulevard transformation is the major enhancement of a stretch of Peachtree Road in Buckhead into a more livable, walkable, bikable and drivable promenade. The transformation will allow Peachtree to live up to its reputation as Atlanta’s “signature street.” It will become a destination, not just a throughway. Information is available at:
